Thanks Ken. This will work nicely with the revisions I've already made to Appendix A in anticipation of FB's next release. One comment if I may:

Maybe a little early for this discussion but depending on an FBer's future plans it might be more appropriate to use FB's 'HandleEvents' and not Apple's Carbon 'RunApplicationEventLoop'(RAEL). The reason is 'HandleEvents' is translated into whatever the FB runtime provides while RAEL is a toolbox call and that's what the FBer gets. 'HandleEvents' can potentially be updated to use non-Carbon but RAEL cannot.


This truly makes my day — every UI in my code is based on HandleEvents.

thanks, Mark C
